After breaking a few cheap sunglasses I decided to invest in something more comfortable, durable and fashionable. My hours of research led to me Maui Jim Sunglasses. I absolutely love them! They’re so flexible and lightweight that sometimes I don’t even realize that I’m wearing sunglasses. Plus the polarized lenses block glare and UV from all angles. Not only do your eyes get protection when the sun is in front or above or from the side, but the technology in the lenses also protects when the sun is behind you.

Coming from Southern California where the sun is intense, I’m always amazed at seeing drivers who don’t wear sunglasses. Instead they try to adjust their sun visors all the way down or drive with one hand in front of their face. That’s not safe. Not only are they blocking little of the sun’s glare but they’re blocking their vision of other drivers, cyclists and pedestrians. We all know that squinting because of the sun can cause swollen, blood shot and fatigued eyes. In addition, studies have shown that sunglasses can protect your eyes from cataracts, cancer and macular degeneration.

Maui Jim Sunglasses are great for outdoor activities like biking, running, fishing and gardening. They fit snug against your head and bridge of your nose with the lightest of pressure. It reminds me of when I bought my first pair of Babolat tennis shoes. Once I put them on they felt like butter, and there was no break-in time. It’s the same feeling with these sunglasses. So the next time you lather up with sunscreen and don the floppy hat, don’t forget to shield your eyes with a good pair of sunglasses.
